The IWSG Group – April 7th Question

April 7th Captikn

The question is Writers Risk….

Hello friends!

Super glad to be writing this IWSG post today.

If you would like to join the Insecure Writer’s Support Group, please click on the link below.


Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!

Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer – aim for a dozen new people each time – and return comments. This group is all about connecting!

Thanks to the awesome co-hosts for today,  PK Hrezo, Pat Garcia, SE White, Lisa Buie Collard, and Diane Burton!

April 7 question – Are you a risk-taker when writing? Do you try something radically different in style/POV/etc. or add controversial topics to your work?


I sincerely believe in “As a blogger/writer it is good to experiment with different styles of writing, through mistakes we grow to perfection. “

I’ve tried writing from a third person POV, second person POV, and took some interesting topics, I haven’t took any controversial topics yet, maybe the concept of giving equal rights to genders in my story. Not sure how many readers have noticed it, some have shared their genuine thoughts about it. But writing from different POV is too good at imagining, but the right words gets misplaced sometimes.

I sometime lose the plot or make it more confusing to understand my plot with my present past grammatical tenses. I start with present jump to past and all of a sudden it will be present continuous or past, I am not good at these terms (sometimes – sighs), I start with a motivation of writing in past, some wrong choice of words actually makes it a imperfect grammar tense. I wish I could create one called ” IGT – imperfect grammar tense” or it already exist?

My reading habits have improvised my writing skills, if I compare my writing form from day 1 to today, I have improved on a scale of 4 out of 10. I still have a long way to improve, keep testing, keep learning. I suggest the new writers to try writing, try experimenting, most importantly read books, more books = more knowledge = more writing lessons.

Thanks for the topic… 👍

  1. It can be difficult, because conversation should be in present tense even if the main story is in past tense. Hard to keep it straight sometimes!

  2. Thanks for understanding tat one… yes. it’s pretty hard to stick to it… I write when I am free beside my work hours, sometime I completely lose the tense and write in a different tense next day, when I read it altogether.. 😳😳😳 shock hits my eyes 😂🤓 things happen…😄😂..


  3. Thank you Nick , I am grateful for the kind words 🤗. I’ll be improving my works.. check out and feel free to pass your views 🤗


  4. I’m not the right one to preach about tense, but I remember when I started writing that it’s one of the thing that gave me a headache (and heartaches) but as mention practice makes perfect and you can only get better the more you read and write. Chin up Simon, your a great writer. Oh and if you aren’t using it yet, try installing Grammarly it helps me a lot. I currently use the free version but I wish to get a premium again one day. You get to learn a lot because it explain stuff about writing while it’s editing.
